Merit Badge Counselors notification

A while back, MBC would get an email saying they had been added as a counselor. Does that still happen? If so, does it say what badges? Where can I find it?

last time I had an merit badge added I received one -

Hi Donovan,

Your council has recently updated its list of approved merit badge counselors and shared that information with unit leaders on Scoutbook.

Your approved Merit Badges are: Backpacking, Camping, Cit. in Comm., Communication, Cooking, Emergency Prep., Enviro. Science, Family Life, Gardening, Graphic Arts, Journalism, Lifesaving, Pers. Fitness, Personal Mgmt., Salesmanship, Scout Heritage, Space Exploration, Swimming, Traffic Safety, Wilderness Surv., Sustainability, Digital Tech, Exploration, Citizenship in Society

*** If you have questions or concerns regarding your Merit Badges, kindly contact your Council.
*** Please do not reply to this email, this mailbox is not monitored.

Since you already have a Scoutbook account, there is no action that you need to take at this time. Thank you for everything you do for Scouting and for your support of Scoutbook.

Ok, that is half of my problem. If it takes 24 hrs for registrars to add badges, does this notice go out after the badges get added? What if I add a badge a couple of months later - do they get another email? Lots of questions from one unit.

definitely after - as in this instance Personal Mgmt was added for me. It should happen at all times IF the leaders have not opted out of emails.

that could be fun point! You won’t get emails if you said you don’t want emails!
